Message Ok, after having used MaxQ for a few days, here are some ideas that I would
like to run past everyone and see what the consensus is.

1 - I feel that MaxQ should easily be integrated into whatever other tests
(unit, etc) that a team is doing on their web apps already. If we provide
multiple language support (python, perl, tcl?, java?, etc) instead of just
jython, then a team could use MaxQ to write tests that would be placed with
their other tests and run at the same time. They would also be able to manage,
update, modify, etc those tests as their project changes. I have already begun
the research into making this possible with perl. I don't think it will be
that hard to do. But maybe as we add more and more languages, we might want to
consider changing the underlying structure to accomodate this. Or, maybe not.
I'll find out more as I go along.

2 - Almost everytime I request a page I want to verify something other than
whether it was successful or not. I want to check that the page contains some
string or regular expression, etc. Maybe we could have someway to do this from
the gui. It is easy enough to do this to the code afterwards but if I could do
it in the gui as I am running my test and looking at the page that I want to
test I feel it would be a great enhancement. Maybe something along these lines
in the gui..

Test -> Page -> Contains (brings up a dialog box asking for a string to use
for the test)
Test -> Page -> Contains RegEx (brings up a dialog box asking for a regular
expression to use to test this page)

and maybe more as we think of them.

This would then generate the code right then and there.

Ok, now the invitation for feedback, criticism... :)
Go!
